This return match was drawn after Hertfordshire had been set a victory target of 262 runs in two and a half hours. The match at Bishop's Stortford in July had been won by Norfolk. For the home team, there was 1 six, 9 fours, 7 threes and 8 twos in Relf's 100 not out, an innings of around 150 minutes. Davies's 51 included 4 fours.
For the visitors, White in his two innings scored 56 with 7 fours and 81 with 10 fours. During his second innings when passing 35 White reached his one thousand runs in championship matches. In the previous match against Cambridgeshire at Cambridge he had taken his hundredth wicket. He was the first player to achieve this 'double' in championship matches, though G J Thompson was to do so for Northamptonshire 15 days later. Relf strained his knee when batting and did not bowl in the visitors' second innings. Buxton kept wicket for Norfolk when Blake bowled in the Hertfordshire second innings.
